National Security :
NANTA President urges FG to activate red alert on Aviation infrastructure
* Calls for back- up with global security intelligence
The President, National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies ( NANTA) Mrs Susan Akporiaye is urgently requesting the Federal Government through the Aviation authorities to step up and activate proactive security measures to deter attacks to aviation infrastructure across the country.
Mrs Akporiaye suggests that the process should be backed up with best global security intelligence architecture, which will nip such negative intentions and breaches in the bud.
” It’s certainly strange to wait to be attacked before we can respond. So, we must advise that relevant government security agencies in charge of the critical aviation systems be put on the highest level of alert at the airports and the vicinities.” Mrs Akporiaye explained.
She added; “All operators and workers in the aviation sector, should also be profiled daily. Access to cargo and passengers areas be limited and put under effective surveillance at both local and international airports in the country.
To the families of victims of the Kaduna to Abuja rail shootings, Mrs Akporiaye says NANTA condoles with them and also prays for quick recovery of those who were injured.
” Our hearts bleed for our people and nation at this point in time. We urge everyone to remember our leaders and nation in prayers but most importantly, let us join hands together to take back our country from the hands of bandits and sponsors of dislocation of national developmental milestones.”
